Getting artifacts on games only

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Im using my sig rig for a good 2+ years now, and everything has been fine. But just yesterday while i was playing a newly installed MMO (for about a week), i started seeing artifacts. They were like lines from an NPC stretching to the horizon. I closed the game, played Portal 2 and Witcher 2 (the games i played before the MMO) to test if there was something wrong with my card, everything went fine (tested for about 3 mins per game). So played the MMO again and it kept happening multiple times per day. I thought the MMO had poorly made graphics engine, so i decided to scrap it and went to try another one. And the same thing happened, lines from certain NPCs and even players would stretch towards the horizon.

I fiddled with the video settings of the game till i narrowed it down to antialiasing. Only when AA is enabled to those 2 MMOs artifact. To further check my card, i played Witcher 2 and after a while those line artifacts came. But this time even without AA, they appear.

I really need help. I cant figure out if my card is dying or what. The things i already did:
  • Updated catalyst, was using 11.2 when it happened. Tried 11.3-11.5, now using 11.5.
  • Fiddled with CCC's settings for games. Started to all On/High options and worked my way down. Lowest settings possible still had artifacts.
  • Uninstall CCC, artifacts still. Installed ATT, did same as above but artifacts still.
  • Card is pre-OCed at 685/1000. lowered to 620/920, the lowest rivatuner allows. Artifacts.
  • Set back to 685/1000, ran 30 mins each of Furmark, OCCT, GPU Tool. Multiple loops of 3dmark test to reach 30 mins. No artifacts whatsover. Temps peaked at 60c, idle at 42c.
  • Reseat card. blew any dust off. check for blown caps or burnt smell, none.
  • Posting in OCN

Sorry for the long post. I just dont know what to do. Artifacts only appear on games, and started on the MMO. I finished Witcher 2 before that and no issues whatsoever.

That is very strange. Is it just the one MMO?
Wahoo!
